Florida bill to allow gun owners to carry without permit heads to Gov. DeSantis' desk

Ron DeSantisThe Florida Senate Thursday approved doing away with licensing requirements to carry a gun into most public places – but not into the Senate chamber where the bill was approved.

The bill, SB 150/HB 543 by Sen. Jay Collins, R-Tampa, passed on a mostly party line vote of 27-13. One Republican Senator joined the Democrats to vote no.

Florida would be the 26th state in the U.S. to allow permitless carry, according to the U.S. Concealed Carry Association.

The proposal had cleared the Florida House a week earlier on a 77–32 vote, with one Republican voting no. The bill now heads to the desk of Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has promised to sign the proposal – although it does not include an open carry provision, which he has also endorsed.
